When You Just Can't Decide Between Dinner And Breakfast

While in Lithonia, Georgia, we came across a new place to dine; Gladys Knight and Ron Winans Chicken & Waffles. Everyone has heard of Gladys Knight and for those who don't know the late Ron Winans, he is part of the multi award winning musical dynasty, The Winans Family; often referred to as the first family of Gospel.

We were greeted at the door by a dreadlock adorned young man who made us laugh before we even got to our table, setting the tone for the rest of the meal. It was a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making you feel as if you were dining among family, instead of being in a room full of strangers. The upbeat vibe seemed to blanket the whole place, evidenced by the room full of laughing and smiling patrons.

Eddie ordered the Chicken and Waffles (see picture) and I ordered Uncle Ron's Southern Fried Chicken, which came with yams, fried corn and a sweet little piece of cornbread.

I like the concept of not having to make a decision between breakfast or dinner. Having both on one plate seems to end that debate nicely.
